    Ok, so I tried to sign into Xbox Live today, and apparently I was correct. Xbox Live hates me. I've been suspended from Xbox Live until this Wednesday (January 7, 2009). So anyways, you get banned from matchmaking and your fileshare if Bungie catches you modding Halo 3 right? I haven't heard of people getting suspended from Xbox Live for this, and also I went to B.net and my fileshare still works.


    Do you guys think I got suspended for modding/having videos of my modded maps on my fileshare or some other reason, because I really enjoy matchmaking. Well, either way, when I was on B.net, I deleted the videos with my modded maps off of my fileshare just incase, though I will still have to look up if you can get banned for having videos of mods or not. Let me know what you think happened.

    You probably got suspended for something else? If Bungie found modded content on your Fileshare, I think you would be banned permanently from Halo 3 and lose your fileshare.

    Only a 3 day ban for tampering with a console? I dunno. Then again, I wouldn't know. I went on Xbox.com hoping for a reason that I was suspended, but I can't even go there.

    When MS starts being able to detect that, and gives that short a ban, tell me.

    Technically you can be banned for the modded content you've made but its unusual for them to come after you.

    I did show my maps to some of my friends, and they invited some of their friends. They all seemed to like the maps though, don't know why they would report me.

    And lol, who even cares about gamerscore? It's useless. It would be kind of fun to get back all the achievements I have too. Give me something to do.


    Also, the only modded files on my fileshare were videos of mods, and they were only about 2 seconds long, practically a picture of me in a video file, not even showing there were mods on the map. I don't think it was that, unless some smartass came here and reported everyone.

    Ha, I've always had a theory that Xbox Live hates me. I've been laggy as hell ever since I started playing. I've bought a new router, changed endless settings, called support a few times, and even now I still get booted off of Xbox Live periodically, even though I still have internet on my computer during these times. I even have an open NAT and the lag cut down a lot, but comes back every once in a while. Well, this just adds on to the theory that Xbox Live just plain hates me. Fun.

    (D'oh, my friend just got his 360 back today or yesterday, he got the RROD for the 3rd time about a month ago. He's playing Halo 3 right now too. Being suspended blows.)

    EDIT: Ok well the ban is over now, and dumba** me forgot to check and see if I could play matchmaking. Either way, I'm happy to be unbanned. If I even continue to mod, I'm going to be a lot more careful about things.

    EDIT: Ok nevermind, I'm going to continue modding. Apparently, some smartass thought it would be funny to report me for having the word "***" in my bio. Everything in my profile came up as code of conduct, but I changed it back. People piss me off sometimes. Anyways, I'm going to continue modding as I said, so look forward to a new map. Soon. Or eventually. Whenever.

    I avoid stupid stuff, but seriously. One word, "***", and someone thinks it would be fun to report me.

    It's either something in your profile (offensive ect), or many of the people who joined you reported you. They can't detect it, so the most they will do is temp ban you to try to warn you to stop. You really think MS would come after you for UserMap modding? I think they would worry more about profile modding tbh.

    If I'm correct it should have the offensive material switched to code of conduct right?

    Check your emails that you used for live. There should be a message from Microsoft saying why you got suspended. I got suspended for offensive things in my bio :thumbdown:

    I've been unbanned for about 9 days now, and yes, it was "offense material". Woo. One word, big deal. Whatever, apparently some people care. Either way, yeah, I got the e-mail two days after I was unbanned lol, but it's all good now.
